Welcome to Year 2! We hope you have a lovely summer and are as excited as us for the term ahead.
Who are the teachers?
Year 2 Halley’s teachers are Miss Davidson and Mrs Reading.
Year 2 Earth’s teacher is Miss Swift.
What will we be learning?
We will be continuing using Read Write Inc to support our learning in reading, writing and phonics.
In the afternoons we will be using the text Toby and the Great Fire of London to inspire our learning. For each text we will have 3 different outcomes in 3 different curriculum areas- humanities, the arts and STEM.
For our humanities (history and geography) outcome will be writing a diary all about the Great Fire of London.
For our arts outcome we will be using the painting The Great Fire of London by Jan Griffer we will be creating our own landscape.
For our STEM outcome we will be making our own fire engines.
We are also very lucky to be able to visit our local fire station to learn about the modern fire service.
In Science we have lots of different investigations all around materials. We will think about the different properties and uses of a wide range of everyday materials.
When is PE?
Year 2 Earth’s PE days are Mondays and Thursdays.
Year 2 Halley’s PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Please remember to send your child with the correct kit on a Monday ready for the week ahead. These will be sent home on a Friday to wash ready for the following week.
What will my homework be?
Reading records and books have been sent home. Please read with your child every night and sign the record to let us know how they have got on and books can be changed. See the poster below to show why is important to read aloud.
Home learning projects
This terms project will be based on The Great Fire of London. You will then be invited in to share the project with your child in their class during our open morning on Thursday 18th October 2018.
